The Language Construction Kit03-01-2012 05:59
Some aeons ago (do you know what is an aeon?) I had a lot of free time to spend in some apparently useless activity like learning to create a new artificial language (also known as "constructed language" or "conlang"). Nobody could have ever imagined that such an activity would become useful in some way for a real job (like my current one at YOUniversal Media, where I work on language analysis).
One of the results of that time was that I studied what I thought to be the best "guide" to construct a new language, i.e., Zompist's (i.e., Mark Rosenfelder) "Language Construction Kit". In addition, I proudly translated that guide to Italian, and that translation still resides on Zompist's website.
The inscription below is written in Verdurian, one of the constructed languages of Zompist's. If you're curious, it reads, "ÄŽitelÃ¡n mu cum pÃ©n veaen er mÃ«san so Sannam", meaning "Go forth in peace to love and serve the Lord."
